Sound City Movie Real to Reel Trailer


April 8, 2011

We’re a measly two decades out, but 90’s nostalgia is already hitting its dubious peak: Scuffed-up Doc Martens and slouchy flannel shirts are ubiquitous again, My So-Called Life DVDs are required (re-) viewing, and Pearl Jam are steadily reissuing their grunge-defining back catalog.
Still, it’s hard for any new band to compete ... Read more in Amazon's Foo Fighters Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Riding the momentum of the hit single "Learn to Fly," which hit No. 1 on the modern-rock charts long before this album's release, the Foo Fighters' third record is unarguably its most refined and poppy. The ominous riff that the opens "Stacked Actors" (which sounds like something Kurt Cobain could have hacked out on Nirvana's gnarly In Utero) is pretty much a red herring. The 10 tunes that follow are a succession of hook-laden pop songs tarted up with guitarist-vocalist (and former Nirvana drummer) Dave Grohl's thick guitars and increasingly sugar-sweet vocals. Nearly every cut on There Is Nothing Left to Lose has the potential of following "Learn to Fly" up the charts. The production is big and friendly and songs like "Generator," "Aurora," and "Headwires" just melt in your mouth. And even though the Foo Fighters' latest is seductively sweet in sound, there are just enough rough edges and lyrical angst to keep things interesting. --Adem Tepedelen

5.0 out of 5 stars The Unexpected From The Foo Fighter's! December 22, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I have listened to this album at least thirty times already and I wake up in the middle of the night singing some of the songs. All the songs on this album are very "catchy", but seem to maintain a perfect amount of the raw edge I enjoy from The Foo's. A lot of people who have liked the The Foo Fighters harder work may tend to be misled that the Foo Fighters have "SOLD OUT" to a softer sound. I call B.S. Besides, who else in the last 20 yrs. has used a voice box on his guitar. This is one of the best albums I've heard in a long time. Honestly, it's nice to see Dave Grohl come to terms with what he wants in his music. This album reflects how it was recorded. At Dave's home in Virginia while bbq'ing burgers at the same time. Just consider this album a portion of what is hopefully to come. I hope that these guys will continue down the path that they are on but still feed the angry side of life as well. We all need a release. If you like this album, may I suggest an album by a group called HUM- "You'd Prefer An Astronaut". Very similar to this sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great rock music, with the Foo Fighters! November 4, 2000
By Zach
Format:Audio CD
This is a very good CD. The thing I love so much about this CD, is not the vocals, but the awesome music. The guitars and the drums go so well together and they never lose the beat. Let's get a run down of this CD:
1.)Stacked Actors ~ This is one of my favorite songs. Great energy and makes you want to break something. Woohooo! 5/5
2.)Breakout ~ Another one of my favorites. This song also has that energy that makes you feel powerful. 5/5
3.)Learn To Fly ~ The first single released from this album. A pure rock classic. Yummy! 5/5
4.)Gimme Stitches ~ This is one of those songs with incredible guitar music and makes you want to dance. Good lyrics also. 5/5
5.)Generator ~ Different, but cool sounding at the beginning, and keeps a midtempo beat. 4/5
6.)Aurora ~ This is the albums first "ballad". More sensitive lyrics and more relaxing. 4/5
7.)Live-In Skin ~ Back to more in your face music. This is a great one to play loud. Good lyrics on this on too. 4/5
8.)Next Year ~ This is my favorite song on this album. Another slower one, but still has enough energy to keep you interested. Good lyrics and a steady beat. 5/5
9.)Headwires ~ This is a midtempo song. This is a really good song with cool lyrics, and the best part is the chorus. 4/5
10.)Ain't It The Life ~ Good drum beat and good lyrics. Also more relaxing. 4/5
11.)M.I.A. ~ Good end for the album. A slower song to end out the album which is always a good way to end. Gets more powerful in the chorus. This is one of those songs that is good to listen to real loud. 5/5
The foo fighters are a great band with a lot of talent and you should buy this CD today if you don't already have it. It's really cool how they can do really powerful energetic songs and also do slower songs, and no matter which it is, they always sound good, and that is the bottom line.

5.0 out of 5 stars These 46+ minutes are golden December 24, 1999
Format:Audio CD
We'll start in the beginning: Stacked Actors, the controversial song said to be about Courtney Love, is probably one of the heaviest songs that the Foo Fighters ever wrote. It ranks up there with I'll Stick Around, Weenie Beenie, and Monkey Wrench. Breakout was my favorite song before I got the album because it was so nice. This song sounds very poppy, but it's punkish at the same time. Learn To Fly, the current hit, is wonderful. 3 chord songs don't ALWAYS suck, as this one demonstrates. The beginning Gimme Stitches sounds sort of like "Slow Ride" by Foghat. Great song. Generator, my guess on the first single, employs the talkbox, made famous by Peter Frampton. It sounds like Garbage's "When I Grow Up" in the middle. I didn't expect that from this, but it's very pleasant. Aurora is beyond description. The music is magical, the vocals are beautiful, everything. Definitely the opus of the album. Live-In Skin is one of the underappreciated songs, but it's great nonetheless. It sounds like old Rush stuff. Next Year, I'm convinced, is a Christmasy sounding song. Very well put together. Headwires, my other favorite, is also Rush-esque, but newer sounding. 'Tis on the same plane with Learn To Fly, except this is more of a "sit back and listen to the tunes" tune rather than "rock out and scream" song. Ain't It The Life is a VERY country-influenced song, but it's wonderful. Interesting steel guitar solo in the middle. Then M.I.A. is very good in the typical Foo Fighters album closer mindset. It is a powerful and charming song. If you are an open-minded Foo Fighters fan, get this album. And make sure you put the disc in your comp and try out the ECD stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grohl's brilliance continues... November 28, 1999
Format:Audio CD
If you've made up your mind not to purchase a Foo Fighters CD that fails to live up to the glory of "The Colour and the Shape", then (1) you won't buy this CD, and (2) you're missing out on some great music. It will be hard for Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters to ever match the mastery of their 2nd release, but their 3rd is still a cut above most of the music being made today. If you fell for the catchy pop melodies of "Learn to Fly", then you'll fall again--over and over--for songs like "Aurora", "M.I.A.", "Breakout", "Next Year", and "Aint It the Life". "Stacked Actors" downright blows and doesn't really belong on the CD, but after that, every song is priceless!
